What lamps (5,500K) can I use in this fixture? I can only find 3,200K lamps for it.
Asked by: Ryan F.
Unfortunately, this fixture can only accept tungsten halogen lamps. With that said, the only way to convert this fixture to daylight is with the use of the Rosco # 3202 Full Blue CTB Color Conversion Gel Filter (48 x25' Roll) B&H # RO3202R48. Otherwise, Mole-Richardson also offers their 900w Vari-Space LED Light, B&H # MO900WLVS which offers tungsten/daylight control. Please see the images below for reference.
